Campaign By 38 Degrees To Defend NHS From Privatisation Continues
This Thursday at 2pm, 38 Degrees will meet with key Lib Dem members of the House of Lords. They’ve asked 38 Degrees to bring along their independent legal experts to discuss the alarming impact the government’s plans could have on the NHS.
That’s not all they’ll be taking to the meeting, as they will also be handing in a copy of the massive people-powered Save our NHS petition, to show the senior Lib Dem Lords that hundreds of thousands of people are determined to protect the future of the country's NHS.
It’s the huge numbers of people involved with the campaign that forces politicians to sit up and listen, and with 444,032 signatures already, 38 Degrees are urging everyone to sign up to it in order to present the Lords with a petition bigger than they’ve ever seen.
"We’ve already got - will your friends and family join in to help take it over half a million by Thursday?" asks the organisation.

38 Degrees added:
"Despite the disappointing result in the first round of voting in the Lords last week, one 38 Degrees member, Yvonne, summed it up on the Facebook page saying, “We may have lost the battle, but we have not lost the war!” If we can persuade senior Lib Dems to demand big changes to Andrew Lansley’s plans, we could stop some of the worst damage to our health service.
Our job is to let them know this isn’t just a technical issue for lawyers alone. Our legal experts we paid for together will provide the legal details. But what will really convince the Lords on Thursday is a tidal wave of public support. Let’s get to half a million by Thursday - sign the petition now!"
